Rainbow Lorikeet Deaths in Melbourne

Since early March 2012, wild rainbow lorikeets (Trichoglossus haematodus) have been reported as dead or sick at a number of sites in the eastern and north-eastern suburbs of Melbourne. ... At one site, over 32 deaths were recorded. Sick birds have shown signs such as diarrhoea, vomiting, regurgitation, and lethargy. In some cases, hand feeding of lorikeets has occurred at the sites.

... At this stage, a bacterial infection of the bowel, known as necrotic enteritis, is believed to be the most likely cause.
